Tell us a bit about yourself

I'm a visual artist/illustrator and researcher. I got my Doctoral degree from Silpakorn University, Bangkok, Thailand. and Master degree in Visual Arts (Illustration) from Camberwell College of Arts, London, UK. By having strong passion toward nature, environment and forest, I have turned it to my research. Moreover, I try to combine my knowledge between technology with art & design together with my research. At present, I'm a chair person of Creative Media and Digital Technologies Program, Prince of Songkhla University, Thailand.

Tell us about one of your favourite projects and what inspired you to do it

My favourite project is come from the part of my PhD research that I had a chance to work with people in various areas. The exhibition 'Leaf Tree' combines traditional Thai illustration, augmented reality (AR) and paper sculpture in a public work that empowers viewers to reflect and comment on human impact on our environment. Leaf Tree explores the changing profile of forests across the four-dimensions. Based on animated line drawings, the work is driven by the Fibonacci series and represents anthropogenic devastation of the world’s forests and the scope for rejuvenation. Combining AR technology and paper sculpture enables the viewer to “move” through the forest as it is devastated by fire and flood and then to when it magically regrows. The show was present at Melbourne Design week 2020.
